Girl Swallows Nightingale hatched in 2016, when Marica Petrey accidentally wrote too much music for a fantasy film she was making and decided that it was the perfect excuse to start a band. With songwriting inspired by folklore, anime, science fiction, and epic saga, Girl Swallows Nightingale conjures a cinematic experience, painting a vivid musical canvas that shifts its colors between modern rock, jazz, theater, funk, and pop, to underwater sound scapes and dreams of outer space.

Some Professional Help is a sort of polyamorous ensemble of musicians rather than a band. Lead by classically-trained bassoonist/singer-songwriter, Scott Alexander, the debut EP features 16 musicians from some of the Bay Area's best bands and orchestras including: Jazz Mafia, Aligator Spacewalk, Van Goat, Makeunder, Tumbleweed Wanderers, The Pickpocket Ensemble, and the Awesome Orchestra Collective.
